Trama

From one of the greatest novelists of the nineteenth century, <i>The Complete Novels of Jane Austen</i> collects all of Jane Austen's novels in a single volume, published in Penguin Classics.<br /><br />Few novelists have conveyed the subtleties and nuances of their own social milieu with the wit and insight of Jane Austen. Here in one volume are her seven great novels: <i>Sense and Sensibility</i>, <i>Pride and Prejudice</i>, <i>Mansfield Park</i>, <i>Emma</i>, <i>Northanger Abbey</i>, <i>Persuasion</i>, and <i>Lady Susan</i>. Through her vivacious and spirited heroines and their circle, Austen vividly portrays English middle-class life as the eighteenth century came to a close and the nineteenth century began. Each of the novels is a love story and a story about marriage - marriage for love, for financial security, for social status. But they are not straightforward romances: ironic, comic and wise, they are masterly evocations of the society Jane Austen observed. This beautiful volume covers the literary career of one of England's finest prose stylists of any century.<br /><br />Jane Austen (1775-1817) was famously modest about her own genius but has become one of English literature's most revered writers. Austen began writing at a young age, embarking on what is possibly her best-known work, <i>Pride and Prejudice</i>, at the age of 22. She was the author of <i>Sense and Sensibility</i>,<i> Pride and Prejudice</i>, <i>Emma</i>,<i> Persuasion</i>,<i> Mansfield Park</i> and <i>Northanger Abbey</i>.<br /><br />If you enjoyed <i>The Complete Novels of Jane Austen</i>, you might like Charlotte Brontë's <i>Jane Eyre</i>, also available in Penguin Classics.<br /><br />'One of my favourite writers'<br />Helen Fielding, author of <i>Bridget Jones's Diary</i><br /><br />'You care about the people living between Austen's pages as intensely as if they were real'<br />Esther Freud, author of <i>Hideous Kinky</i><br /><br />'Jane Austen is a writer who will be with you for a lifetime'<br />Elizabeth Buchan, author of <i>Revenge of the Middle Aged Woman</i>
